Is Tree Lopping Worth It Over an Arborist?
Sometimes tree lopping tradespeople or tree loppers tend to be contacted instead of an arborist to manage tree pruning or tree removal to get the job done quick and easy at a low fee. As tree lopping isn’t a certified practice, your trees might not get the care they need. Whereas our arborists in the Blue Mountains are certified and qualified professionals that can advise you on which tree services would be good according to their specific needs (i.e., whether they require tree pruning, tree cutting or tree removal).
With a cheaper tree lopping cost can come short-term gains that don’t serve your long-term goals for your garden and yard space. A short-term solution of tree lopping can end up having you contact tree loppers more frequently, thereby increasing your costs considerably.
Tree lopping can also cause the tree to go into a state of shock which could encourage decay and attract harmful pests. This happens because, unlike delicate tree pruning, tree lopping leaves an open wound susceptible to the spread of tree diseases. With such potential risks associated with tree lopping, it might not be the best for your yard space. Conversely, our arborists in Blue Mountains are well-equipped to perform tree services such as tree pruning, tree cutting, stump removal and tree removal as needed, without harming the trees and the surrounding foliage.
Why is Stump Removal Important?
A tree stump is like that little errand you must take care of but keep forgetting because it can always be addressed later. Stumps can just be benign and not cause any harm to your garden space except maybe mess with the aesthetic you wanted to go for. However, stump removal may become necessary if stumps begin posing a threat to your surrounding foliage and property safety, for instance:
- Stump removal can be necessary if it is causing an unnecessary rise in accidents in your yard, (e.g., tripping and impeding with gardening activities such as lawnmowing)
- If a tree died of a disease and removal was not performed, then its leftover stump could be highly damaging to any plants you might be trying to grow as it can steal all the nourishment and moisture from the soil meant for other vegetation. In such a case, stump removal would become necessary.
- A stump removal would be required if a harmful pest caused an infestation that could even spread to your indoor space. It could also infect neighbouring trees, which might require tree cutting or removal if the stump isn’t extracted on time.
- Stumps can also encourage new trees to sprout in their surrounding area which can be an unexpected outcome. In such cases, it’s best to have our arborist perform a stump removal before it escalates.
